Printmaking

The Printmaking program aims to provide a thorough education in Printmaking through offerings in Intaglio and Relief processes, acquaint students with historical and contemporary practices, develop strong personal image statements parallel with mark making indigenous to the discipline, and expose students to the added mediums of Monotype, Monoprints, and Collagraph. The program is geared towards preparing students for careers as printmaking artists, art teachers, or graduate students.

Courses are taught in the printmaking studio in Crabbe 102. The printmaking studio is set up for relief, intaglio, collagraphs, and monotypes and equipped to support linoleum-cut, wood cut, wood engraving, engraving, etching, dry point, aquatint, hard ground, soft ground and monotypes processes.

Printmaking Coursework

The Printmaking Program consists of courses in introductory printmaking, Relief and Intaglio processes,  and Collagraph and Monotype mediums.

  • Relief Printmaking: 
Includes linoleum cut, wood cut, collagraph, and wood engraving. 
Traditional relief printing techniques are used to produce small editions of black and white and 
color prints.
  • Intaglio printmaking: 
Engraving, etching, dry point, aquatint, hard ground, soft ground, and monotype all fall into the Intaglio category because the image is produced from below the surface. 
Traditional Intaglio printing techniques are used to produce small editions of black and white and 
color prints.
